  • Faster commissioning with no power supply surprises Automation Studio calculates I/O power requirements

    Faster commissioning with no power supply surprises Automation Studio calculates I/O power requirements

    The new Power Calculation function in Version 4.11 of B&R's Automation Studio engineering environment shows developers exactly where power supply modules are needed in the layout of their X20 I/O system. Easily optimizing the number and position of power supply modules early in the design phase makes machine commissioning faster and more predictable.




    Greif, Inc., a global leader in industrial packaging products and services, has developed a carbon black free plastic screw cap for its jerrycans in response to the black plastic recycling challenge. It will be available through Greif’s global closures business, Tri-Sure.

    Undetectable by recycling facilities using near-infrared (NIR) technology, conventional black plastics containing carbon black colorants are challenging to recycle and often end up in landfills. The new packaging material uses an alternative black color that does not contain carbon.

    The carbon black free closure will initially launch in Scandinavia, where changes in legislation within the Nordic Swan Ecolabel state that packaging and closures must not include carbon black in the dying process.

    “The new caps will be more easily sorted for recycling, and in time we hope that they become the standard across the rest of Europe and even worldwide,” said Jacob Demén, Greif sales director Scandinavia. “It is a small step change but will have a significant impact and underlines our commitment to producing innovative, safe, and high-performing products that have a low environmental impact. Innovations such as these support our resolve to embrace a low-carbon future and minimize raw material use by innovating new products and solutions that support a circular economy.”

    The carbon black free screw cap attaches to all Greif jerrycans used across various industries, including food and beverage, chemicals, and agrochemicals. Greif’s Tri-Sure business is a global leader in industrial closures and packaging components.

  • Robots Helping FedEx Sort Packaging

    Robots Helping FedEx Sort Packaging


    A new sorting system for packages at FedEx’s Queen’s, NY facility has proven to provide significant benefits, according to the company. FedEx Ground recently implemented Berkshire Grey’s Robotic Product Sortation and Identification (RPSi) systems at this station, the company announced on August 12. 

    Berkshire Grey, a developer of Intelligent Enterprise Robotics solutions, executed the RPSi systems to robotically sort the thousands of small packages that arrive daily in bulk into containers bound for other specific hubs and stations across the FedEx Ground network. 

    RPSi has been engineered to autonomously process – pick, identify, sort, collect and containerize – individual polybags, tubes, padded mailers, and other small packages that traditionally are sorted manually. This installation is the latest investment made by FedEx Ground to help accommodate the rapid growth of e-commerce through the use of automation and robotics.

    “We are encouraged by the initial package handling and processing accuracy of Berkshire Grey’s RPSi system in our Queens facility,” said Ted Dengel, managing director of operations technology and innovation at FedEx Ground.

    FedEx Ground plans to install additional Berkshire Grey RPSi systems at sortation facilities in Las Vegas, Nev., and Columbus, Ohio, in the coming months.

    “Our RPSi system is engineered from the ground up to automatically handle high volumes of small packages in small spaces with limited worker intervention, which significantly reduces labor challenges, streamlines sorting processes, and increases the efficiency of carrier operations across their networks,” said Jessica Moran, SVP Parcels and 3PL businesses at Berkshire Grey.  intervention.” 

    This technology has been developed and installed as a direct response to the exponential growth of e-commerce, which has accelerated the demand for reliable automated solutions throughout all stages of the supply chain.

    FedEx Ground believes that continued innovation and automation will improve safety, efficiency, and productivity for its team members as they continue to keep the e-commerce supply chain moving.
